In Another Reality


Others seek my
intervention, miss
me when i'm gone &
need me to sign a form.

I stayed in school, made the
grade, my mantel's heavy w/
trophies, & i
own a mantel.

A ruffled friend needs my
blessing, the
show can't start 'till i arrive, &
a distraught child demands

cheering up from
nobody
else but me.

In another reality
we all feel, hear & see
just how much worse it all could be.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
